1993 Ford Taurus leaking coolant

Asked by Dec 08, 2015 at 01:12 PM about the 1993 Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It was pressure checked at a shop. They said the leak was in the radiator. I
replaced it myself plus the hoses, and the trans coolant line (it was so
rusted it broke when replacing the radiator). It started again yesterday. The
coolant was heated when it was dripping behind the front passenger tire. It
isn't overheating yet. The gauge stays between "O" and "M". The fan kicks
on as it should. I am thinking water pump but if was having issues, it would
have shown up on the pressure test three week ago, right?

No it would not have if the water pump is bad

Trace the leak to its source. Maybe the leak is a freeze plug.

Check heater hoses too.
